The Old Man Comes Around

All right! For all of you younguns out there, here on this here blog, we used to talk pretty frequently - or at least, even more frequently than we do now - about booze, food, beer, and such. Today, in that tradition, I acquired the ability, delicious ability to review Old Grand Dad, a fine Kentucky bourbon, bottled by the Jim Beam company of Clermont, Kentucky.

Now I bet you're wondering something like: How does Old Grand Dad have any significance to this Penn State community? If you're wondering that, then it's because you're ignorant! So be learned, ignorant one!

Old Grand Dad was Joe Paterno's favorite whiskey, or so we have been told by Jay Paterno. At the end of a long Saturday, after the day's work was done, Joseph Vincent apparently liked to retire to his modest but homely home and drink Old Grand Dad on the rocks while watching the night's games.

Understanding the importance of this beverage to an American hero, I therefore decided to review this beverage for you all.

Here is my review of Old Grand Dad 100 proof bourbon whiskey.

I decided to do like the fancy folks on BourbonEnthusiast and have lots of cool notes about how it smells ("nose"), how it tastes, and how it "finishes" (goes down my piehole and the ol' pie drain). These notes are really refined and subtle, and artful.

Nose: Smells like alcohol.
Taste: Tastes like alcohol.
Finish: When it went down my throat, it felt like alcohol. A few moments later, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it still felt vaguely like alcohol.
Overall:

It tastes quite a bit like alcohol, and had some of the effects of alcohol, and so I was happy with this beverage. 8.5/10

So there you have it! Old Grand Dad bourbon whiskey is booze, smells like booze, tastes like booze, makes you feel nice and all boozey! Mmm! Booze!
